Healthy Eating

Healthy Eating

 Our menu complies with the New School Food Standards and offers variety and options to all with hot and cold food available every lunchtime.

In accordance with the catering contract under which school meals are provided by Chartwells and the pricing review clauses contained within that contract, the new school meal prices from Monday 2nd November 2020 are detailed below:

Our food is provided by Chartwells. All bread is freshly baked daily and 95% of their fruit and veg is sourced from British growers.

The price of school dinners is £12.25 per week (£2.45 per day) throughout the Federation. Please ensure all meals are paid for in advance, at the beginning of the week. If your account is not credited with the required money, we will be unable to allocate your child a meal.

Of course, your child has the option to bring in a packed lunch, if preferred. Under no circumstances should there be sweets, glass bottles or fizzy drinks brought into school.

We are always happy to speak to anyone with ideas and concerns. If special diets are required then these can be catered for by our excellent kitchen team.
